Can a GFI recceptacle be installed on a ark fault breaker circuit? I have had a few bedrooms that open to the outside with GFI's near the door. I would like to wire it to the bedroom to keep things simple but I don't want to have a nucence tripping problem. I seen something about GFI personal pertection ark fault breakers but if it's much more $$$ it does not seem like the best answer.

I've seen this done a few times and have heard of no problems.

I have often considered using an bedroom
circuit to power an gfci rec, but have always
just ran another circuit to avoid any tripping, thanks for the info ryan.
